Grace Wembolua

My name Is Grace Wembolua, when I was 4 years old, a criminal fire ruined the building I was living in with my mom and little brother. Some people died intoxicated including my mom and my little brother. Some people got burned and others traumatized. I nearly died. I was in an artificial coma for 3 months. When I woke up, I realized that my family passed away a and that both of my legs had been amputated below the knee.
60% of my body was burned, and I was covered with bandages on my whole body. 3 years later, I’ve been adopted by my aunt. 16 years after that, I joined the French women’s wheelchair basketball team and participated to my first Paralympic Games
